Reducing cycle times and increasing profits with the latest application strategies

QuickCam is the advanced CAM design service from Quickgrind designed to support you with the machining of complex parts in difficult materials. It’s the answer for components that take too long to manufacture. Or if you are struggling to find the time and resources to investigate advanced machining and cutting tool strategies. Strategies that could easily double your output.

Why choose QuickCam?


We know what it’s like. You’re up against a tight production schedule, you’re running a standard solid carbide tool in a generic tool holder and the tool path you’ve programmed isn’t quite cutting it.

Most operators can generate a CAM file that represents a tool path but they won’t always take account of a particular machine’s behaviour or the unknown variables of workholding and other factors. If all variables are not optimised – cutting tool, machine, tool holder, material, workholder and component – the best case scenario is poor performance and an inferior part. Much worse, operators run the risk of seriously damaging the machine tool itself. A digitised tool path offers limited value without the simulations and verification to back it up, particularly if the operator is unable to interpret the data and they go ahead with the incorrect strategy regardless.

Implementing QuickCam in your business will give you reduced cycle times, leading to reduced tooling costs, increased output and improved capacity. The bottom line? Improved throughput, more satisfied customers and increased profitability.

How QuickCam works

QuickCam offers performance enhancing strategies to best suit your parts and machines.

A virtual meeting with one of our engineers will allow us to discuss your requirements as well as gather information on your machines, tooling and any existing strategies.


Once you have decided to use the QuickCam service we will ask you to set-up an account with us as well as to sign an electronically generated NDA – this is to protect your IP rights when sending us your confidential model data.

We will need a copy of the 3D model you intend to use including any supporting documents. If required, fixture design can also be included.

Toolpath optimisation

Quickgrind offers the very latest cutting-edge carbide tools.

By using QuickCam in conjunction with machining cycles from hyperMILL®, our in-house CAM software, and CGTech VERICUT’s tool path verification programmes, you know that your strategies are always going to be up-to-date.

Our state-of-the-art Technical Centre is the ideal environment in which to discover the latest machining methods. Using our Mazak 5-axis and Quaser 3-axis machining centres or virtual CAM simulation, our engineers can offer guidance and support to programmers while implementing new strategies.

NC code can be supplied under certain circumstances – please ask us for more details.

Get your CAM strategy on track

Our QuickCam experts will evaluate a number of factors to achieve optimised results

Production programming can eliminate up to 80% of manufacturing waste, considers the machine you are using, its post-processing verification procedure and the correct codes to address the equipment and machine the component. Our QuickCam CAM experts will evaluate all of these factors in order to achieve optimised results including increased productivity, reduced cycle times (with tool paths optimised by up to 50%), improved verification and simulation procedures, and higher quality products.

Our experts will work with you to conduct trials whilst generating and running tool paths and machining strategies. Our investment in the centre enables us to demonstrate what is possible with our ground-breaking tooling and tool management solutions.

The centre is fully equipped with a seminar theatre and training room, meeting rooms and machining centres. Visitors can take a guided tour of our production facility, undergo technical training and discuss their specific requirements.

Infinite Possibilities

Quickgrind infinite possibilities


Without the limitation of catalogues the possibilities are infinite


Don’t limit yourself to standard ranges. Instead, choose solution-based tooling, that gives you the right tool, for the right job, at the right price. With the marginal cost increase more than covered by improved production throughput and efficiency.

Ordering is as easy as one, two, three…

All our tools can be designed specifically for your application and are available in virtually any size, diameter, radius, neck relief, coating or reach. Many are available with chip-breaker, through-coolant and other options.
